The holidays are over and the new year is in full swing. Are you longing for the holiday comfort food you indulged in a month ago, like turkey, and stuffing, and mashed potatoes? Or are you trying to forget those caloric mishaps that you’re working off at the gym now?
Either way this recipe is perfect for you! It looks and tastes just like mashed potatoes, but it is made with the healthier, less starchy vegetable cauliflower. It skips all the extra fat and dairy and is completely raw and vegan, but flavor is not compromised I promise!
-head of cauliflower
-1/4 pine nuts (I used half pine nuts and half hemp seeds, optional could use either or both)
-1 TBS olive oil
-1 TBS water
-3/4 TSP sea salt (or dulse flakes)
-half of a small clove of garlic (chopped)
-fresh ground black pepper, for topping
1) Chop the garlic and the cauliflower on a cutting board.
2) Add all ingredients to the food processor or blender. Blend until smooth.
3) Spoon into blow, make them look fluffy like mash potatoes to trick the people your serve. Eat cold or lightly heat on stove or in microwave just before serving. (But I swear they don’t even need to be heated, they are delicious cold)
Enjoy! They are the best recipe I have ever made I wish I was eating them right now!
I adapted the recipe from my favorite author and celebrity nutritionist Kimberly Snyder. Here’s a link to the recipe on her blog: http://www.kimberlysnyder.net/blog/2010/02/21/raw-cauliflower-mashed-potatoes/
